Runs well with minimum functions in use.
Confusing to setup at firsts. But once the cam was set up according to the manual there were problems keeping it running. It crashed constantly so had to disable functions until reduced to camera recording with date and time and 5 minute videos. Motion sensor filled SDcard and would not rewrite so disabled it. But ok as a basic cask cam....
Good value for money for dual dash camera
When the camera system works, it's great. However setting up is rather cumbersome. It appears that the housing is not designed for Australian conditions as my case warped in just a few months although the manufacturer has offered a refund if I choose to return it. Images captured from both cameras are pretty good, but nightvision images are not as good as cameradesigned for night vision.
Radio interference from power supply
Once I had set up the camera using enclosed instructions I went for a test drive only to find I couldn't listen to the radio due to static noise. Unplugged the power supply and radio came good. Took the power supply back to JB HI FI and they replaced it. Lo and behold, exact same problem. Seems the makers have opted for the cheapest supply they could get. I now use a power supply from another product with no problems at all. Perhaps JB should distance themselves from this company.?
Bang for buck !
I was looking at the Uniden 755 igo but their service was total crap
I like to buy in store so I can take something back if it fails so JB Hi fi have a good shop and good service locally and this was on special.
I am a total luddite and hate this kind of thing but even I could set it up and get it running by myself. ( yes I did have a few problems but stopping and thinking fixed them.
I am unsure how the download works on a mac and so I need to work that out but the unit is up and running and doing the job.

Not so bad now I found what's wrong
I recently left a bad review of this dash cam because after a few months of use, it started powering off and on repeatedly. I have just discovered the cause - it's the car-charger that supplies the power to the camera. I have found the same fault on another car charger that had been used for a while. Evidently these chargers don't last too long. So it wasn't the dash cam itself that was faulty. Some other people have reported the off/on fault, not only with this brand, so it's evidently quite common. However, the fault with the night vision (L...EDS don't illuminate the scene at night) also reported by other users still needs to be pointed out. Apart from the defective night vision, I have to say it worked rather well. You have to familiarise yourself with the menus/operation, but once you've got that sorted, it's quite good (at least I found it was)
Works for me
Only bought yesterday, at JBHI under $200, took home and set up as per manual, all good, checked when I got to work, recorded everything in 5 min loops as where it was set to. Can't fault it yet, early days but...Still records when screen goes off as its designed to do. A bit more explanation in the manual would've been helpful, but not too bad.
Has some bugs!
This camera looks good, takes great videos, night time recording is not too bad. Has great features like loop recording, full hd video, rear camera, parking sensor, motion sensor, automatic startup on car start. But there are definitely some bugs in the software. If you set off the motion sensor or the parking sensor when you get in the car, it starts recording in that mode which turns off after 30 secs or so. So when you start up your car and drive off you think its recording but its not. If the recording is triggered by the car engine start ...then things are fine and it keeps recording until the engine is switched off. At the moment I have turned the motion and parking sensors off to make sure its recording while driving which is more important.
Mislead public due to poor manual
Hi Guys, I have one of these and unfortunately all the problems are not to do with the unit but poor explanation via the manual!
Hop onto the below website, and contact support, these guys are awesome!
Mine is working perfectly…
The product is excellent!!
The biggest complaint is (the unit turns its self-off and doesn’t record?
Well in actual fact you have screen saver turned on.. ( designed to help preserve battery and for night driving
The biggest problem is the manual! That’s why it got 4 stars
Anyhow contact the guys at Kapture!
Questions & Answers
Why doesn't my rear camera work please anyone. Cheers.
I am after a windscreen mount for my kpt722. It was left in our old car
I bought a KPT-722 from JB HiFi in 2018. It has just started making a high pitched beep every 2 seconds and the triple lights on either side of the lens come on as it beeps. I disconnected it but it kept on doing this for 20 minutes but now stopped, maybe the battery ran out? Any idea whats happened?
